PayPal announced today that beginning February 24, mobile developers across 30 countries will now be able to use its new mobile software development kit (SDK), according to VentureBeat.

The new SDK will allow developers to provide their clients with more convenient PayPal transactions within their mobile apps. Before, customers had to use a separate window or screen to log into their PayPal account and transact mobile payments. The new technology now allows them to sign within an app or mobile website. In addition, it can remember the information to be used for other future transactions, the report explained.

Last fall, Uber became the first company to use PayPal's new SDK. The taxi app will also launch the PayPal checkout in UK this Monday, the report stated.

PayPal's special operations head Stan Chudnovsky told VentureBeat: "For us, [the new mobile SDK] was all about making sure that we put all the dialogues into the context of the app, no more redirects."
